The Bot and I are on a bit of a 'life milestone' roll at the mo...in the past 1 1/2 years we've got married, bought our first flat and emigrated to America. So it made sense that we keep up the momentum...and in November we'll be welcoming the newest member of our clan, BB aka Baby Bot. And this is definitely the one we're least prepared for!
Being pregnant is a whole new ballgame. But so far my experience is this:
Lots of nap time
Guilt-free Nutella eating
Nausea - if you'd brought a pickle or some garlic near me in the past 3 months i'd have knocked you out
No alcohol - I guess this is also a plus as i'm totally hangover free but I am missing my G&T
My body resembles a map of all the world's rivers (50% extra blood = crazy veins)
I've also discovered that 90% of my wardrobe is going to be pretty much unusable for the next 6 months...damn you 50s and your accentuated waists! But hello maternity shopping! I'll be sharing weekly photos from here on in to document my ever expanding belly and how on earth you dress yourself without an unlimited budget, personal stylist and personal dressmaker. Watch this space.
Happy Thursday y'all xxx
